Looking for a villian to lynch

Fairplay Magazine sponsored a conference
"aimed at informing members of the press about issues of concern to the maritime industry"
- The article: CRIMINALIZATION OF ACCIDENTS HAS “CHILLING EFFECT” ON SAFETY INVESTIGATIONS. - appeared in the Master Mates and Pilots Wheelhouse Weekly and is available here.

According to the article:
MM&P Vice President noted that the high profile nature of maritime accidents has generated political pressure to “play the blame game,” driving prosecutors to look for a “villain to lynch” in every case.

A very important topic indeed... and how did I guess they'd somehow relate the Cosco Busan incident to drinking?
